SOCIAL MEDIA

Five Important Things to Remember

What Social Media Can Do

There are multiple benefits to using social media in your learning processes. Learning effectiveness is improved as learners more quickly get their hands on better knowledge. Certain skills can be practiced in public, and learners can easily give and receive peer and expert feedback. Online discussion and sharing allows learners to question their own attitudes as well as the attitudes of others. All of this helps improve the actual learning process, as well as the transfer of knowledge to the workplace.
